Google Glass may be in its early days, but personal newsreader Zite is already trying to figure out how to take advantage of it.
Zite was one of the first companies to answer cries from loyal Google Reader users when the service was shuttered back in March, building a “replacement” in about six hours. Yet in the news reader’s latest iOS app update, Zite’s management team makes one thing very clear: it’s time to let Google Reader die.
Google Reader is dead, but custom news magazine Zite hopes to help fill its place.
CNN’s $20 million acquisition of Zite bore its first fruit today with the launch of new news curation feature CNN Trends.
Building on the success of its iPad app, Zite is rolling out a new iPhone-optimized version of its personalized news app today.
